PhotographerBook - 1998
This new volume of her legendary work is more complete than any volume published to date. Drawing from her personal archives at Syracuse University and including the entire range of her photographic endeavors, it includes her earliest industrial work, striking portraits, and visual essays depicting horrendous social conditions. Alongside portraits of Churchill, Stalin, and Gandhi are photographs of cavernous steel mills, South African coal mines, Soviet Russia, Buchenwald, and the impoverished streets of India. Informative commentaries on the breadth of Bourke-White's work complete an unprecedented retrospective on this extraordinary photographer.
